BAINBRIDGE, GA (WALB) - Memorial Hospital in Bainbridge was given the community leadership award. The Georgia Hospital Association chose them for the program they started, Team Lean, a community weight loss competition

Organizer Cathy Willis explains, "It's not just a quick 6 week or 8 week program and then you go back to eating the way you used to. We want this to be a community lifestyle so that it continues."

Since the creation of Team Lean, other hospitals around the state have adopted it, and are leading their communities to healthier lifestyles.
